Most will learn a couple words - I've heard of a few that can talk very well. But they are definitely not among the best talking parrot species in general. And there's no guarantee that any parrot will learn to talk.
The main reason GCC's is popular is because they tend to be playful and cuddly, if raised well, as well as being easier to live with - relatively quiet, non destructive, and clean - for a parrot anyway.
GCC's are not expensive birds - both the cage and vet checkup will likely cost about as much as the bird unless you get a more unusual color.
